Academic Excellence is the core of our mission at Wake Forest University and the primary responsibility of the Provost’s Office.  Across all of our schools and the Wake Forest College, we strive to create and advance academic endeavors of meaning, value, and intellectual challenge that lead to a transformational education for our students and the generation of new knowledge, understanding, and creative work that serves to better human lives and experiences.  

Our outstanding faculty – who are dedicated teachers and world-class scholars – sit at the heart of our academic excellence. Their commitment to disciplinary and interdisciplinary ways of comprehending the world and to teaching the whole person our students bring to the classroom provides a distinctive experience at Wake Forest.  The Provost’s Office has the pivotal role of supporting our faculty and the many academic support and administrative offices that make academic excellence a reality across our campuses.
